The history of Manage It

Founding director, Colin Andison, started out as a support worker for people with disability and aged care in both London and Perth. He worked primarily to support people to return to community living after they had participated in extensive rehabilitation.

In 1996, he founded a disability support organisation which specialised in assisting people with Acquired Brain Injury and other needs transition and live successfully in the community.

This was prior to the introduction of disability support packages. He was later requested by the Department of Disability Services in WA and a manager from Brightwater Care Group to provide services to individuals. That company employed approximately 110 people.

In February 2013, Colin formed another organisation to provide self-management and shared management services, which would become known as Manage It.

After 23 years, the original support organisation was sold to avoid a conflict of interest, leaving Manage It as an independent plan management service with no affiliations to other service providers.

Manage It now provides Plan Management services and is believed to be the first registered Plan Management organisation in Western Australia and one of the first in Australia.

Colin was involved in the NDIS trial site in Perth and participated in planning of services with the Office of the Prime Minister and Cabinet and the NDIS in Geelong. His input assisted with the development of what was then Self-Management and Shared Management systems. He also built the first software in Australia to assist people self-manage and share manage their own services.

That software system has evolved into a CRM for NDIS claims, budgeting, payments, as well as payroll, including Single Touch Payroll Phase 2 integration. The system has a fully functionality and adjustable client portal.

The Leadership team at Manage It now enjoys finding like-minded people to join the team as we continue to grow and assist people manage their NDIS obligations.

From the start, Manage It has been exceptionally helpful and professional. Manage It has made the whole process easy to handle and always sort out any problems without delay.
